Recycled Wine Cork Angel Ornament a 20 Minute Craft

Sharing is caring!

I love reimagining vintage crafts from yesteryear and giving them a new and modern twist. I originally made Recycled Wine Cork Angel ornaments with my Gran in the 1970s with large pearl heads and matching beaded wings. Natural elements like upcycled wine corks, wooden beads, and some simple supplies from the Dollar Tree make this a quick and easy 20-minute ornament to craft with the kiddos this holiday season.

Here’s What you need to Create a Christmas Angel Ornament:

Here’s How to Create a Recycled Wine Cork Angel in 20 Minutes:

STEP ONE

To begin the Recycled Wine Cork Angel, gather all supplies.  Attach the unfinished wooden bead to the top of the wine cork, so that the opening of the bead is positioned as a singing, open mouth.  Secure with a glue gun and glue sticks.

STEP TWO

Apply rosy cheeks to either side of the wooden bead angel head using pink craft chalk and a pom pom. I have had this Pebbles chalk set forever. If you don’t have craft chalk, you can use a cotton swab and blush from the Dollar Tree.

STEP THREE

Tie a ten-inch length of skinny gold ribbon around the angel’s neck and finish with a bow.  Trim ribbon ends with scissors to prevent fraying. I always cut the ribbon a bit larger than needed for a smaller project such as the recycled Wine Cork Angel, which makes tieing a bow much easier.

STEP FOUR

Draw small ovals for eyes with the fine tip of the MONOTWIN Permanent Marker. Position the eyes above the open, singing mouth for realistic facial features. You can also draw two half-circles for closed Angel eyes.

STEP FIVE

Cut a gold tinsel chenille stem in half with scissors.  Wrap stem around your finger to create a circle, leaving a one-inch long straight section, then twist to secure.  Bend the straight section of the gold tinsel chenille stem at a 90-degree angle. Attach the angel’s halo to the back of the wooden bead head with a glue gun and glue sticks.

STEP SIX

Measure and cut an eight-inch length of gold wired ribbon that is at least one-inch wide. Create a bow with two loops and no tails from the gold wired ribbon twisting the ends to secure.

STEP SEVEN

Measure and cut a 12” length of skinny gold ribbon, tie the ends in a knot to create a loop, and then attach to the back of the angel wine cork body with a glue gun and glue sticks.  To finish the Recycled Wine Cork Angel, glue the gold wired ribbon wings to the back of the angel body.

    Your angel ornaments look so sweet! Very clever using the bead hole to make the angel sing.

    These are adorable Beth! I made a wreath out of about 175 corks this summer and now have accumulated more to give your great diy craft a try. Pinned! Happy holidays!
